A TAILORED FIT is a free standing wall located on the south-west wall at education hall. The task is to design a free standing wall unit to better serve NYIT in different aspects. We decided to focus on the following variables: daylight and functionality. Our proposal is to design a wall that integrates both a daylighting aspect and a seating function. The seating, or "RIBS" act as the wall's structure. The daylighting is incorporated through the spacing of the ribs which is optimized to filter the necessary amount of sunlight needed to service the area.
